Apple working with Disney?

Apple is working to for release as early as September and prepping to sell music videos via the iTunes Music Store, Business 2.0 editor Paul Sloan reports that "Steve Jobs has spoken with Disney President and soon-to-be CEO Bob Iger about ways to license various Disney content for a video iPod." The report is based on an internal company email reportedly obtained by Sloan. Sloan also said that while Apple won't be the first to enter the portable digital video device market with the rumored video iPod, the company will leapfrog the competition, including both Microsoft and Sony. "If the past is any measure of what's to come, Jobs will enter the arena late (as he did with the iPod) only to leapfrog over the competition with some entirely different device."
